Stories ruined by narration

Would you try another book written by the authors or narrated by Cathy Dobson?

Everrrrry woord is soooo longggg - The narration is so annoying with every word dragged really makes this inaudible although a shame because some of the stories are not bad.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Completely! - The narrator is awful! I gave this a 1 STAR because of the narrator - could not listen to the stories....

Any additional comments?

Avoid books from this narrator

Strange short stories

A weird collection of strange stories made even weirder by the odd narrating style of Cathy Dobson. Because of this I found it hard to concentrate on the stories themselves.
